I am a retired biology professor who still teaches at UIC part
time. When I’m not teaching I am usually fixing things around the
house or working on one of my ‘green’ energy projects. I’m always
tinkering with something. I make soap, biodiesel and candles. To
relax, I either watch movies or play my blues guitar.
I have always tried to live up to the principles I formed in my
youth. That freedom and creativity are essential for happiness.
That quality education and equal opportunity are not just dreams,
but basic human rights. That people are more important than money.
I reject the ‘every man for himself’ approach to life and believe
that only by working together for the good of all will humanity
reach its true potential.
Despite being computer savvy, my daughters dragged me into the 21st
century kicking and screaming. I have gotten very good at texting
because they forced me. They made a Facebook page for me, but I
refuse to use it. I like Netflix, but gave up on television in the
mid-eighties and haven’t been back. Anything that I want to watch
like documentaries, I catch on Netflix or DVDs.
If your idea of a great evening is to see a good play or listen to
a great band and then spend the rest of the evening talking about
it, I’d like to talk with you.
If you love to play guitar or to listen to the guitar, I’d like to
play for you.
If you think there is more to this world than what we can see and
touch and more to life than just work and accumulating possessions,
I’d like to explore the world with you.
In short, I would like to meet someone who can talk as well as
listen, who can give as well as take, who sees life as a journey we
can share together.
What I’m doing with my life
Don’t overthink this one; tell us what you’re doing day-to-day.
Being myself. Doing biodiesel. Working on my off-grid log home in
Canada. Doing things I never had time for before.
I’m really good at
Go on, brag a little (or a lot). We won’t judge.
Many things. I like working with my hands as well as my brain. I'm
really good at seeing things differently than most. I'm really good
at being analytical, but I also think with my heart.
